Repair tired staging deck platforms

Repair tired staging deck platforms

We are often asked if its possible to repair staging and refurbish deck platforms that are either tired, or just really old, to save from throwing them away.

In some cases the answer if yes. Its always possible to re-carpet decks with fresh carpet, when its become torn, frayed or is coming away from the plywood on the deck surface.

poorly made deck platforms

A poorly made deck platform import, made of layers of plywood. Very heavy deck too.

However you’ll notice the following things tend to re-occur with most deck platforms: the locks can get stuck, or the Allen key hole gets rounded off, the locking cleats on the deck sides fail, and in some cases the decks get locked together.

You can view our online YouTube channel to see how to make good some of these fixes, for inferior manufactured staging decks.

If you wish to trade in your old tired staging against a new Next Generation one available here on Portable Stage website, then drop us a line and we can help.

Did you know? If you have old stage deck platforms, its highly likely the locks are the only thing stopping you from using them. Instead of repairing the staging, you can purchase our NexGen riser, which don’t require locks, making your staging decks usable once more. Drop us a line and we can explain further. Keep and eye on our staging video channel, as we will be film a tutorial on this very soon.

    Will I be able to get the pins out of revostage risers too?

      Not the old revostage riser version as the pins are push fitted. The newer version however is a screw pin and with a bit of manipulation you should be able to get it out, to replace the aluminium poles.

    9th November 2016 at 7:52 pm
    • PortStage Reply

      There are only two real options for you. Place leveling mats in the area prior to placing the staging down, or have a bespoke joiner make a stage to suit.
      NexGen staging is designed for level floors, there is up to 4mm height adjustment possible, BUT, its likely that wouldn’t be enough to take out the un-evenness of the cobbles. Sorry.

      Yes, but you’ll need metal plates under the piano legs to increase the area of the point load. We can arrange those for you.

    Will NexGen portable staging fit in our car boot?

    9th November 2016 at 8:00 pm
    • PortStage Reply

      Yes, assuming you have a family car size. The width is 1000mm at the max, so just check your car first before ordering. Most cars can accept that width even if you have to angle them or put the back seats down. Thats the beauty of NexGen portable staging. it stores and transports in such a small space.
